His nephew was Tecollotzin.
Quaquapitzahuac was appointed by his father, Tezozomoc, in 1376 to serve as the first tlatoani of Tlatelolco, thus beginning that city's royal house. Under his rule, Tlatelolcan armies participated in various conquests on behalf of the city of Azcapotzalco, winning the right to receive tribute from the conquered towns in the east of the valley of Mexico.
His wife was called Acxocueitl.
He was a grandfather of the prince Tezozomoc.
